New Charges For Paterson Teacher Facing Luring Charge

A northern New Jersey high school teacher who allegedly offered to give a male student $50 for sex is now facing new charges involving other students.

Thomas Weir (Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office)

Passaic County prosecutors say they’ve filed charges of child endangerment and promoting the prostitution of a child against 50-year-old Thomas Weir.

Authorities say the charges brought Monday involve three former students who were taught by Weir when they were seventh-graders.

The 21-year veteran of the Paterson school district was first arrested Feb. 24 at a fast-food restaurant where authorities say Weir had arranged to meet a current student. Weir has pleaded not guilty in that case.

Weir has homes Monticello, N.Y. and Paterson. It wasn’t clear Tuesday if he has retained a lawyer.
